Moment Of Truth For Class Of 2019 As Matric Results Countdown Begins

It’s the moment of truth for the Class of 2019 as the countdown to the annual matric result release has begun with first Independent Examinations Board (IEB) results expected to be released from midnight Tuesday.

The IEB will announce the private schools matric results at midnight on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. 

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will announce the national matric pass rate later Tuesday evening.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) will release the National Senior Certificate matric exam results on Wednesday, January 8.

Last Friday, the quality assurance body, Umalusi, approved the 2019 matric results after its evaluation found that there were no exam paper leaks or systemic irregularities.

Umalusi CEO, Dr Mafu Rakometsi, said the exams were largely unmarred by disruptions, protests or issues with the papers.

“The quality of questions papers is a very important aspect of the integrity and credibility of the examination,” Rakometsi said.

“It is therefore pleasing to see a marked improvement in the overall quality of question papers across the assessment bodies, as more papers are approved after first or second submission to external moderators.”

Rakometsi also announced that there were no systemic irregularities picked up or paper leakages, which would compromise the integrity of the examinations.

Inside Education has partnered with the DBE to bring you, the class of 2019, your matric results.
